About Down under Horsemanship

Clinician Clinton Anderson is world-renowned for his innovative horsemanship Method that has helped thousands of horse owners safely and effectively enjoy with their equine partners. Each episode of Downunder Horsemanship features Clinton sharing the proven results of his method and working with horse owners one-on-one to solve common behavioral and riding problems as well as advancing their horsemanship. Clinton’s easy to understand, practical instruction offers something for every level of rider.

Born and raised in Australia, Clinton grew up with a love of horses. At age 13 he began playing polo Crosse and was chosen for a national team representing his state. Clinton started his training apprenticeship full time at age 15 with nationally acclaimed clinician and horse trainer, Gordon McKinlay of Rockhampton, Queensland. During the next two years, he started and trained over 600 horses under Gordon’s expert guidance.

At age 17, Clinton left Gordon McKinlay and began working for Ian Francis, nationally acclaimed Australian horse trainer in Gympie, Queensland. Clinton worked steadily with Ian for one year, and then used his knowledge and expertise to begin his own training facility.

Clinton continued his own training and clinics until coming to the United States in 1996 for a brief apprenticeship with Al Dunning, winner of multiple AQHA World Championships. Clinton then returned to Australia and his horse training business. In October of 1997, Clinton officially made the United States his home where he began training, touring and conducting clinics.

In 2001, he became the first clinician to create a made-for-TV horse-training program that aired on RFD-TV. The use of untrained horses and a variety of topics covering common problems faced by horse owners quickly made Downunder Horsemanship the network’s number one equine program. In 2011, Clinton, again, proved he is an industry leader and pioneer by launching his show on Fox Sports Net– a national broadcast station that reaches 80 million viewers.

In addition to being a clinician, Clinton trains and shows his own reining and reined cow horses. He currently continues to compete and win at the highest levels of competition.

Today, Clinton continues to teach, train and compete. He’s shared the Method all across the country, and regularly hosts horsemanship clinics at his facility in Stephenville, Texas. He works hard to educate horse owners on how to be safe and effective while enjoying their horses. His training method is easy to understand and designed to help horse owners get the results they desire.
